America's most recent war dead lie in a quiet patch of ground at Arlington National Cemetery known as Section 60. Grave marker for Anthony Ray Charles Yost. A native Apache, while assigned to Special Forces Operational Detachment-Alpha 381, FOB 51, Mosul, Iraq, Yost distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous conduct while engaged in combat operations against enemies of the United States during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM.
